Aaron Jeffery will return to CFFC later this month to defend his middleweight belt against Rex Harris. The fight will headline CFFC 105, which is set to happen on January 29th at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, per an announcement made Thursday.
Jeffery earned the CFFC Middleweight Championship in March of last year, fighting four rounds for a decision win over Collin Huckbody.
He later appeared on the 2021 Season of “Dana White’s Contender Series,” competing for a spot on the UFC roster. He was unsuccessful in that appearance, losing to Caio Borralho.
Harris fought as part of the PFL for years, joining them when back in 2015 when they were still recognized as WSOF. He competed in their 2018 season, getting eliminated in the semi-finals of the playoff portion.
His last appearance was in August, where he stopped Chris Dempsey with strikes in the first round on a regional card.
The title fight sees Harris make his return to CFFC nearly a decade after his last appearance for the promotion. Harris fought on CFFC 15 in 2012, defeating Shedrick Goodridge.
